      The Report function of the forum works well. If you see someone acting up, acting out, or just being an okole, use the Report function. It works! I have it set up so it not only sends me an email, but that email is then marked with a flag, and get's put to the top of my email list. I will try to access/look at the report/topic as soon as possible, but remember, I'm on a six hour time delay, and other mods not only have a life, but a real job as well.  k den

    I would much rather see the mpc Camaro then the AMT version, I believe the AMT version was last reissued as a Michaels exclusive, the MPC version was last seen as an annual in 1992 in an AMT box

    Sorta long shot request
    A few months a ago I bought a Fujimi Nissan 180SX at a model show, didn't realize till I got home that it had the wrong glass in it, can anyone spare the clear tree from that kit,

    Deffinently looking forward to the Suburban. Wish they would've shown an actual pic of the f100, curious on how that one will look in scale. Mostly excited for the RX7. Gonna be nice to have that one molded in white.

    Kits out now, straight reissue, decal sheets a little updated and they put new tires in the kit, but no changes other then that. 
  5. gasman added a post in a topic AMT 2016 snap Camaro.   

    I just picked this kit up today, gonna be a quick project. 
    There is a slight mold line on the D pillers same spot on both sides. really happy too see plastic seats, not the vinyl seats we saw in the 2010 Camaro kit. 
    only issue I have is that the headlights are molded to the body. there is glass for the lenses. but all the headlight detail is molded to the body, It could be a PITA too paint, other then that it looks fantastic.

    I could care less about the fake blowers, the crime against humanity are the LS motors.

    A little disappointed the Nova will be molded in black, I'll still get one but I would've rather seen it molded in white
    The Cheverro is a must buy for me. I know it's a custom but It looks good, and the ugly rear spoiler is a superate part. 
    Ill be getting one of the Datsun Monster trucks, but just for parts so I can restore an original stock MPC Datsun pickup.

    Esthers Hobbys, been open since 1938. survived having 6 feet of water in it about 12 years ago. The area its in has been seeing a bit of a resurgence in the last decade. 

    Bill and Walt's is still around but they moved outside of town. they only have 1 location now. 
    The hobby shop in Cranberry is Hobby Express, they moved to a much, much better location up the road in a busy shopping center. This is my go too hobby shop.

    Happy I ordered my crew cab D200 on Friday, not expecting too see it for a couple years and that's ok. 
  12. gasman added a post in a topic Two more iconic cars we need kitted   

    No on the bricklin, a big YES on the stock Deolorean 
  13. gasman added a post in a topic Michael's Clearance, Selected Car Kits   

    Stopped today, nothing on clearance but they finally got some new stock in, the Revell 65 Foose Impala, and the Starsky and Hutch Torino. Used a Coupon and got another Torino for under $14.
  14. gasman added a post in a topic The Modelhaus Website will open on May 15th.   

    Website back up, and even though they are closing up shop they have a new kit available. A 70 Mercury wagon
  15. gasman added a post in a topic Which kit is better?   

    Avoid the MPC 69 Camaro and original Monogram 69 Camaro, both have major proportion issues
    for a 69 the Revell kit is the way too go, The AMT 68 kit is'nt bad, but if you want a 67-68 Camaro get the Revell version.
    The AMT 70 1/2 Camaro is also very good. But make sure it's the new one, not the version from he early 90's.
